    Got a mesh network, but I also have a house with steel siding. Causes problem for the hub, but not my computers or phones. I have a high range external antenna for one of my tablets, but not sure it'll work with the Pi.

    Add a wired access point. Solved my issues. Has better performance than a mesh system as it's haulback is wired, not using the wifi.

    I solved all my WiFi problems by adding a mesh system with strategically placed 'discs'.

    Extend wifi range

    I just added two additions to my house and have Z-Wave locks for both. I'm trying to add the locks to the hub (HS4 Pi Hub G2 Edition). I have a USB Li-ion battery that I'm using to power the hub so that I can take it around to the various devices and add them to my system, but I'm finding that if I stray outside of the main house -- even 10 ft away -- the hub cannot be accessed over the network via my notebook. I've added wifi extender antennas to my notebooks, but never to a Pi.
